Barrett Distribution Expands Baltimore Warehousing & Distribution
Barrett Distribution is proud to announce the addition of a new fulfillment and distribution center in Baltimore, MD. Barrett will be providing warehousing, distribution and transportation services for a Canadian based food manufacturer from this new Mid-Atlantic facility.
